About Melissa

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
All dogs MUST be fully vaccinated and tick and flea free before I will do meet and greet. This is necessary and non-negotiable and included in the dog profile before I accept any dog(s) into my home . Also Vet information needs to available in case of emergencies.

I have had dogs all of my life and I can't remember when I have never had a dog to care for. I love love love dogs. I am careful, considerate, helpful and kind. My dog has a great life with me. She sleeps with me, walks all the time and of course kisses me all the time. I love taking dogs into my home or at your home to give them the best and most comfortable experience while your away. I am an advocate for rescues dogs (actually all animals). I have a rescue pup and she is very shy. We are working on it. We love to be around people and other dogs. It is a very rewarding experience to take other pups in my home and at the same time hard to let go. I get attached, but in a good way. Walking is one of my favorite things to do. There is a great park close by that I love walking with my dog, its shady and I takes about 30 to 40 minutes to finish and my dog loves it. I believe in myself and I believe I am a great caregiver. I have been taking care of dogs over 25 years.

Melissa did an excellent job caring for our dogs. She did everything above and beyond what we expected. When we need help again we will be asking for Melissa's assistance.
She did a great job. Very caring
Melissa was great! She even called me to give an update on my dogs. My dogs had a great time. I would board them with her again.
Melissa was wonderful. She loved our dog like he was her own. She performed home visits 2x per day Visits included walks, feeding and play. The Vacay could not have gone better. I would recommend Melissa to anyone who loves their dog(s)
Melissa is great! She has been watching my dog for me for quite some time now and my pooch always comes home happy! Melissa sends me photos while I am away too! She definitely goes the extra mile to make sure the dogs are happy and healthy!
